Database of Instruments for Resource Use Measurement (DIRUM)

DIRUM is an open-access database of resource-use questionnaires for use by trial health economists.  The online database supports browsing, sorting and searching.  It includes any method to estimate resource use based on patient recall, e.g. questionnaires, diaries, etc.  The aim is for the resource to continue to grow, so if you want to submit a resource use instrument, contact Professor Dyfrig Hughes, Bangor University (info@dirum.org).
